[10.0] "Great charisma, look and energy and had a very entertaining and original gimmick. Unforgettable, if sometimes baffling promos and memorable, high energy entrances. One of the best physiques of all time. Face paint and attire was iconic. Not a great worker and usually worked short matches but had great in ring chemistry with the likes of Randy Savage, Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect and Ted Dibiase. People say that he was carried by those guys but the truth is that he elevated those matches with his showmanship and intensity. Has several legitimate 4 star matches under his belt. Underrated as a worker and despite reputation for being a loner and difficult backstage, was generally well liked in the locker room and never became a slave to the business or a suck up to Vince McMahon. Huge draw in the late 80s and early 90s, who's popularity and merchandise sales rivaled that of Hulk Hogan. Hugely influential, 90% of the current WWE locker room were fans of his growing up. Even pure workers like Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and Hiroshi Tanahashi (! ) have cited him as influences. Worked hard to get the Undertaker over when the Undertaker was just a rookie."

[8.0] "Not great in ring but so much charisma it really didnt matter. Beloved by fans and comparable to a shooting star. As memorable a promo as anyone ever, and when the music hit the crowd erupted."

[8.0] "As far as mid-card champions are concerned, Warrior was elite in that regards. Yet when he got passed the torch to transition to main event status, things didn't pan out for whichever reason (maybe it was money issues, Warrior's perceived talent or lack thereof, burn out, or some combination of the above. ) Nevertheless, his face-paint and theme music are iconic; he definitely left his mark on professional wrestling."

[2.0] "Has anyone ever watched a wrestling match featuring The Ultimate Warrior and thought "Wow, that was a great match! "? I doubt it. 2 points for involuntary humour and entertainment purposes only."

[Kommentar] "Was a big fan of the Ultimate Warrior when I was a child. He had a great look and a awesome gimmick. Just one problem. He could not wrestle. He promos was funny to listen too and do not make any sense"

[8.0] "Very underrated wrestler. He had some great matches with Rude and Macho Man. The Self-Destruction dvd really gave him a bad name. Watch some classic Warrior matches and I bet you give him a higher rating."

[10.0] "Big fan of wwf/wwe in the mid 80's and early 90's and Ultimate Warrior was one of the best from that era and in my opinion one of the best of all time. I still think his match at WM 6 with Hulk Hogan was one of the best."

[6.0] "Strong talker, very charismatic, poor worker, bad wrestler, very athletic for a man his size, strong gimmick, good in either role and also he was a player in WWE history."
